eBay question

I recently sold a half dozen items on eBay. The last time I did this was probably 6 years ago, and obviously some procedures have changed. My question pertains to PayPal. It is not a free service, am I correct. I'm sure they must take some percentage of the sale. Am I just better off asking the buyer to send me a cashier's check or money order for relatively small dollar items (my current items ranged from $20 - $250).

TIA - I started going through the PayPal tome but quickly tired of it, 'cause I'm sometimes lazy.

Re: eBay question

PayPal = necessary evil

If you get a regular account, they don't take any money out on transactions. If you get a merchant account, you are able to accept credit card payments, and PayPal charges a % (3%?) of each transaction + ~$0.30.

Accepting CC's opens up a huge market, but there is a price to pay.
